President Bush will miss Nolan Ryan at the Ballpark

The Texas Rangers and CEO Nolan Ryan are parting ways, as he’ll step down on October 31st. Since George Bush left office, he has been a frequent visitor to the Rangers Ballpark

“The Rangers will miss his presence — and I will miss sitting next to my pal at the ballpark,” Bush said in a statement sent by his office, via ESPN Dallas. “Laura and I wish Nolan and Ruth all the very best.”

For now, Ryan has no immediate plans to get back into baseball.

“Will I be the CEO of another major league ballclub? No, I won’t,” Ryan said, via ESPN Dallas. “But I’m not going to sit here today and tell you that I don’t know what a year from now might bring. This might be the final chapter of my baseball career. If there was something else I did, it certainly wouldn’t be in the role I had with the Rangers.”

For now he wants to spend time with his grandkids and work on his ranch, a hobby that he shares with Bush.
